Japan results at Rugby World Cup 2023: Scores, matches, schedule for Brave Blossoms in France
The love for rugby in Japan has enjoyed a massive rise across the past decade and, as such, the national team have improved drastically.
Even though they remain one of the nations to have played in every single World Cup since the inaugural edition in 1987, the previous two tournaments in particular have really showcased Japan as an up-and-coming heavyweight in the sport.
From their shock win versus South Africa back in 2015 to their hosting of the tournament in 2019, the Brave Blossoms seem primed to cause more upsets this time around.
They face a difficult challenge to emerge from a tough pool, but there is real hope that 2023 could be the year they make a concerted run through the knockout stages. Can they mix it with the very best in France?
The Sporting News is on hand to bring you the latest results from Japan’s 2023 Rugby World Cup campaign.
